I remember going to wrestling matches with Mr. Tim and Timmy.When I stayed overnight at their house, Mr. Tim would always let us stay up late, watch wresting or a move and then Mr. Tim would make us pancakes the next morning.I'll miss him alot and the fun we were having together, espcially wrestling.

Tim will be missed by so many. He made light and fun of things that would not always be considered funny. However? The way Tim told it or repeated a story? Had anyone that knew him laughing hysterically. He was a good man. A true Father that loved/loves Timmy and adored Laurie. He did for others just because it made him happy to help. I remember him from 7th grade science class. What a character! He always spoke of the Kiss coffin- but he will be wecomed to Heaven with open arms for the kind of man he was- not for a specific coffin or ceremony. Only the good die young and Tim was a true good one! God Bless!

Dear Rookie, I will ALWAYS remember your joking humor whenever you came to my house after work. :) You had a way of letting everyone know who you were by honking your horn at 5:30 in the morning to pick my dad up for work, texting me information about the deals that were going on at walmart, letting me what singer was coming to Cleveland or telling me "look that guys single and he's looking at you" LOL. All of the memories that you left behind will STAY with EVERY SINGLE ONE OF US!! I will miss you dearly.

I remember seeing my husband on the phone when he heard of the loss of his friend and working buddy. The look on his face was shock. "Rookie" and my husband Lenny shared rides to work each day. After work he would spend some time just talking and joking around at our house. He talked to our daughter, calista, and son chris, and myself. He made them feel apart of conversations, and joked with calista alot! He had a large heart! I was so sorry to hear of the accident. My heart goes out to his family. Always remember to tell your family you love them each day. Live life to the fullest. He will be missed, and rememberd.
